Desert Pyramid Boss Full Release



v1.2: Integration with my new datapack
CC's Wandering Trader!
This special Wandering Trader was created specially to trade the custom items from my datapacks for diamonds and emeralds.



Run in, dig down, no mobs defending the treasure, defuse the scary trap by breaking the pressure plate, loot the chests and TNT, build out, never see it again.

Unfortunately, that's all it's ever been for the past few years. The treasure and thrill is proportional to the challenge.



This datapack changes everything about pyramids.

What you'll first notice is a particle effect when you come near the new pyramid: suddenly you cannot break blocks nor place them. The pyramid has an aura that changes you to Adventure mode when you draw near to it.

The interior is much more spacious as well: the towers house a spiral staircase each, and the main hall much more spacious; suspicious creeper-faced sandstone blocks mark the huge cracks and ominous crypts around the four walls. Redstone torches scarcely cast a dim glow on the corners of the room.

If you stumble upon the pyramid in the night, you would encounter five pyramid-unique mobs, falling from the sky and welcoming the fire of the morning sun. Each pyramid tower holds a spawner, making encountering the pyramid at night a dangerous ordeal. Is it worth looting all four treasure loot chests, two in each tower?

But you would need to enter the pyramid itself at night, for that is the only way to acquire the Enchanted Fire that is required to initiate the boss fight.

Upon setting the pyramid aflame, iron bars lock the players in and the Dymarip awakens at the highest point of the pyramid. Fire is its element of choice, and Fire Resistance effects are rendered null.

It will call upon hordes of minions to defend the pyramid's treasure, and should they fail their task... let's just say the Dymarip is no stranger to death.

Should players prove worthy and strong enough to wrestle the treasure from the Dyamrip's grasp, they will be heftily rewarded with four late-midgame treasure chests, along with a chance for two new items: Dymarip's Flame, a very powerful Multishot crossbow that shoots Flaming hunger-tipped arrows [see footnote below]; as well as a chance for two Enchanted Totems of Undying.

The pyramid also rewards you with a tier 3 beacon structure that grants passive effects around the conquered pyramid for 10 in-game days, until the pyramid is reset for the boss fight to be replayed again.

What are you waiting for? The Dymarip is longing to be awakened...




Disclaimer: the datapack is now in late extra Alpha, meaning that features are mostly implemented and play tested, but bugs may still persist (especially since I just ported it to 1.16). It is not advised that you load this version of the datapack into your survival world; rather, you can definitely mess about in a creative world. It should be okay to load this into your survival world, nothing will break too badly. Just run "/function dpyramid:0dev/setpyramid" set on an unlooted pyramid, and it will update the pyramid to the new one. Then, simply gear up in level 1 enchanted iron (tho unenchanted iron for seasoned players), follow the advancements to obtain the Enchanted Fire, hop into survival and take a test drive of the fight. It will not be easy.

Wow I haven't changed this disclaimer in a while. It should've been okay to put it into your survival world a version or two ago. But now it's in 1.16 and I'm prepared for bugs. OOP

IT'S FULL RELEASE! I'M SO HAPPY! It's been a long journey of playtesting, but it's been a fun ride. Thanks to everyone who's helped me along the way: my play testing friends; fellow random online people commenting wonderful ideas, pointing bugs and giving encouragement; and just each person who thought this datapack was worth trying out and download. I really do hope that it spices up your SMP experiences!

Use the spoiler tab "Debug Commands/If Something Breaks" below if something breaks.

Please report bugs if you encounter any! Do comment what you enjoyed, it helps me understand my creation better! I hope you enjoy!


[Dymarip's Flame] : In the Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 20w46a, /replaceitem will be changed to /item. I foresee that this means the code for Dymarip's Flame will not work. Will need to update so that the main.mcfunction still works. For now, this datapack will not work for 1.17 snapshots.


[NEW] CC's Wandering Trader Datapack Compatibility
CC's Wandering Trader

CC's Desert Pyramid Boss Full Release v1.5 Minecraft Data Pack

Do you have a full chest of Blizzard Orbs? Or maybe you loved replaying the Dymarip boss fight again and again, just for the challenge and fun of it and not for the loot; and you have too many Dymarip's Flames but you might prefer a bow to a crossbow.



CC's Wandering Trader Datapack adds a new wonder in the oceans.

Ocean voyages and intercontinental journeys seem mindless as you just hold sprint-'W'. Besides that, Wandering Traders always spawn on surface land, and it's always the same useless trades.



These Seafaring Wandering Traders are unlike their land-lubbing counterparts who might settle for the uncommon scraps of nature, no, no, no, these Wandering Traders are willing to part with even diamonds for the big guns: the heftiest, unique and rare treasures that only experienced wandering adventures who are well-knowledgeable and diamond-clad can obtain.


At the break of every dawn, a Seafaring Wandering Trader will attempt to spawn in any of the Deep Oceans biomes, if no other Wandering Trader is nearby. They will stay there for almost a day, before despawning.

This special Wandering Trader was created specially to trade the custom items from my datapacks for diamonds and emeralds. I had a last minute thought to add some vanilla items to sort of integrate it and make the trades feel a little more vanilla. But it should always be used in tandem with one of my datapacks.


CC's Desert Pyramid Boss Full Release v1.5 Minecraft Data Pack




Mini-Wiki!

Now for the technical notes. Should you want to play the datapack without spoilers, you can just follow the advancements and tooltips to add two and two. Should you still be stumped by Dymarip's puzzles, you may refer to the following feature list!

Desert Pyramid Structure
  • Upon being in the proximity of a naturally-generated desert pyramid, it will be converted into this custom desert pyramid!
  • Players within proximity will first get mining fatigue, and closer will be converted to Adventure Mode. If they leave the pyramid, they will be returned to Survival Mode. Particle effects will appear when game modes are changed.
  • The interior of the main hall is redesigned the most, for the purposes of the boss fight. There are crypts in the sides of the main hall, with coffins and beds—more on that later.
      • Each pyramid tower holds a spawner at its top: it spawns pyramid-specific mobs in a large radius around the pyramid, with an even larger required player proximity.
      • Each spawner is accompanied by a loot chest tucked away behind it, should treasure hunters fight for it.
      • These two chests have the same loot table as regular desert pyramid chests.
        CC's Desert Pyramid Boss Full Release v1.5 Minecraft Data Pack
      • The underground treasure chests with the TNT trap and all is filled up with sandstone. It will not exist with this datapack.
      • Instead, each tower has a spiral staircase downwards, leading to a basement filled in with sand, demanding to be dug up.
        
      • The basement chest is a smaller variant of the reward chests at the defeat of the pyramid.


      Desert Pyramid Spawners/Mobs
      • The individual spawners have a spawn range of 35 blocks, mob cap of 4 each and required player range of 50 blocks.
      • The most common spawn are desert silverfish. Just nicer way to encounter them besides only in strongholds.
         
      • Next are the melee skeletons. They're much faster than zombies, and if you spot one, you know you're near a pyramid.
         
      • Then there are the usual desert husks. Nothing special, just that near a pyramid, their frequency is much much more than it already is.
         
      • We also have pyramid zombie villagers. They always wield wooden axes that hits like a truck on hard mode, and break shields. They all wear golden helmets.
         
      • Finally, we have the shovel zombie villagers. They wield enchanted golden shovels and wear golden helmets. They are a rare spawn, but you may want its shovel.
        
      • Each of these mobs comes with Fire Resistance, so don't try to wait out the night.
      • They also start out with Slow Falling, because they can spawn in the air.


      (How to get) Enchanted Fire [spoilers]
      • Tamed cats have a 70% chance of spawning in an item from a loot table in the morning when they sleep nearby you.
      • There are beds in each crypt in the main hall of the pyramid.
      • Players must tame a cat, bring it to the pyramid at night, kill all nearby mobs and sleep in a crypt.
      • There is a 70% chance the loot table is called upon, then cat, if the player is in a pyramid, will find an Enchanted Flint and Steel.
      • The Enchanted Flint and Steel can be used like any normal Flint and Steel in survival, but it has the "Can be Placed on: Orange Terracotta" nbt tag.
      • Players in Adventure Mode must use it to set fire to all the orange terracotta blocks at the centre of the pyramid to initiate the boss fight.
         flint



      Boss Fight (Phase 1)
      • A player in Adventure mode must use an Enchanted Flint and Steel to set alight all the orange terracotta blocks at the centre of the pyramid to initiate the boss fight.
      • Lightning bolts strobe the room, an ominous sound echoes, a bossbar appears, filling up, just like summoning a Wither.
      • An invisible entity is summoned at the top of the room, shape barely conceivable by virtue of some smoke particles. It is the Dymarip.
      • The Dymarip itself stays at the top—for now—and like a blaze, it will be on fire before it fires a barrage of three fireballs downwards at you.
      • Every 6 seconds, it will attempt to spawn a horde of minions, indicated by a sound effect as well as particles.
        
      • It will randomly choose from the list of mobs above minus the shovel zombie villager, but some of the mobs have slightly less health for balancing.
      • Silverfish will spawn from the cracks in the walls. Melee Skeletons, Husks and Axe Zombie Villagers will spawn on the beds inside the crypts. These mobs are all fire resistant to the Dymarip's fireballs.
      • The relative ratio of each type of minion will vary dynamically according to the health of the Dymarip!
        
      • The Dymarip takes almost no damage from arrows, so must be attacked with melee hits.
      • So players must stand in the middle, jump hitting the Dymarip (you can just reach it with jumping) and try to bring the Dymarip's health to zero, while it summons increasingly more and stronger mobs to attack the player.
      • The mob cap and spawn count per spawn cycle increases proportionately to the number of players in the pyramid.
        



      Boss Fight (Area Effect Centre)
      • During the battle, the blue terracotta at the centre emits strange area effect cloud particles.
      • If any player stands nearby the centre blue terracotta block, if his saturation level is 0, then the player will receive Saturation. I've gone full fights without eating food once.
      • Besides that, if the player is on fire, going to the centre will douse the player.
      • If any mob or player stands nearby the centre blue terracotta block, it receives: Regen III, Resistance I and Speed I.
      • It can be a double edged sword: players can and should utilise the centre to receive buffs; but if the mobs are nearby, they also receive the exact same status effects. The axe zombies hit hard, if only they moved faster...
        
        


      Boss Fight (Phase 2) [spoilers]
      • Upon bringing the Dymarip's health down to zero, its own Enchanted Totem of Undying activates...
      • It will float down, forgetting the minions and will directly fight you, one on one. The crypts will be blocked up. The final fight is on.
        



        The Dymarip has two alternating states: Camping and Fleeing.


        Camping
      • It starts with the camping state. The Dymarip will take and stay in the centre and stay there, gladly enjoying the Regen and Resistance effect buffs that it offers.
      • It may regenerate up to 10% of his health, and the Resistance basically nullifies all non-critical iron sword hits whilst in the middle.
        
      • After it has shot its barrage of fireballs at you, the center orange terracotta blocks will be set on fire, sort of like a wall of fire that prevents you from coming too close.
        
      • When it is about to shoot again and becomes on fire, the wall will go down temporarily.
        
      • While it is still in the middle, it will periodically try to attack you with evoker fangs that will also give you Hunger. The rate of evoker fang attacks scales proportionately to the number of players.
        



        Fleeing
      • After a while, it will alternate to its Fleeing state. With the temporary speed boost from the middle, it will quickly run, almost teleporting, to the corner furthest from you.
      • Even after the speed boost is gone, it will still run away from you very fast. During this phase it loses the middle's Resistance passive effect, so it is vulnerable.
      • But do not mistake it for a coward's retreat, no, for it is merely trying to put distance away for its ranged fireball attack, lulling you in with a false sense of security. For more test players have died during the Fleeing state than during the Camping state.
        
        • When it becomes on fire and is aiming to shoot at you, it will move much slower. Use this as a window of opportunity to damage it.
        • However, after some time, it will try to return to the middle to its Camping state with a whirling sound.
          

          =============================    
        • In both states, if you get too close, its physical melee attack hits hard, disables your shield, lights you on fire and sends you flying to the opposite corner of the room.
        • In both states, for each of the three fireballs it shoots, it will also then summon an evoker fang beneath each player at the same time that also gives a Hunger II effect.
        • Watch out, though it is easy to learn its patterns but if you're not careful, you can easily lose all your health with three fireballs, three fangs and one big melee attack.


        Loot/Defeating the Pyramid
        • Upon defeating the Dymarip for good this time, it's treasure o' clock!
        • Four chests will appear around the centre of the room. Loot table is discussed later below.
        • The Dymarip's Flame and two Enchanted Totems of Undying items also falls in from the sky onto the centre.
          
        • A tier 3 beacon pyramid will spawn right underneath the centre, while the blocks above the pyramid's centre will be turned to glass in order for the beacon to activate.
        • The player can set whatever effects they want; it's a free beacon! Especially for farming the desert pyramid spawners.
        • There is a 10 in-game day (or 200 minutes) cooldown until the chests and beacon are removed and the pyramid can be replayed again. Until then, the beacon reward will be active!
          


        Terminating Boss Fights + Why Boss Fight isn't starting
        • The boss fight will terminate (or not even start) if the following happens:
        • There is no more Adventure mode players inside the pyramid. This could happen if all the players had died, or if the players are teleported out of the pyramid. Not sure what happens if you teleport them out into faraway chunks and whether the pyramid will terminate if it is unloaded. It may also occur when they use commands to change out of the Adventure gamemode.
        • There is another Dymarip boss fight currently taking place. Yes, the way how boss bars work, you can only have one up globally. It's not multiplayer friendly, but I don't see it being too frequent a happenstance with a server that has less than 50 active players at any one time.
        • It is Peaceful mode. Duh. It should terminate properly if you switch it to Peaceful mode at any one point during the fight. It is well tested, but may clash with other datapacks.
        • A newer datapack was reloaded midway during the fight, updating to the newest version of the default, dormant pyramid.This is to prevent any unforeseen bugs.
        • Don't run commands like /kill on certain auxiliary entities. Certainly if you do a /kill @e, it will kill the armor stand marker that marks the centre of the pyramid, and that will cause problems. Look at the debug commands for help, especially in resetting pyramids that have lost their armor stand marker.




        New Items

        item list


        Enchanted Flint and Steel

          flint

        • Has a 70% chance of being found by your tamed cat when sleeping in a desert crypt with a cat beside you.
        • Can be used on Orange Terracotta blocks in Desert Pyramids to imitate the boss fight where you're usually not allowed to break or use any blocks or items.
        • It has just enough durability to light all the orange terracotta for one boss fight.
        • Functions like normal Flint and Steels otherwise.


        Forbidden Golden Shovel
           
          

        • Small chance to drop from a shovel zombie villager, a rare spawn from a desert pyramid spawner. (Can be assured with Looting).
        • Just like the Enchanted Flint and Steel, it can be used in Desert Pyramids to dig up only Sand when you're usually not allowed to break blocks.
        • The idea is that many naturally generated desert pyramids in Desert Hills biome may spawn inside of a hill or in the ground.
        • Instead of raising up the desert pyramid to surface level, I thought it'd be fun to dig up the entrance to the pyramid, as if you were an archeologist digging up some ancient structure!
        • The durability is very low, so you might need a few depending on how sunken in your pyramid is; though most pyramids shouldn't be.
        • It is lightly enchanted with Level 5 enchants as well!

          Thanks to Komb for suggesting the rename!



        Enchanted Totem of Undying

           
        • Beating the Dymarip boss and resting the pyramid will have a 50% chance to drop each of two Enchanted Totems.
        • Just like Enchanted Golden Apples, these Enchanted Totems are like regular Totems of Undying, but stronger.
          Similar to Dymarip's Flame, it is meant to mimic the totem that the Dymarip apparently uses at the end of Phase 1 of the boss fight.
        • The player will get the following effects:
            Regeneration IV (0:30)
            Absorption III (0:15)
            Saturation III (0:15)
            Fire Resistance I (0:30)
            Resistance IV (0:05)
            Slowness IV (0:05)
        • The Regeneration and Absorption is much stronger compared to the normal Totem; Saturation is just to mimic the centre giving you the same saturation buff during the boss fight. Fire Resistance is an effect that Pocket Edition's Totems have that can be thrown in here too, and there is the potency of the Potion of the Turtle Master at the end.
        • A player should be able to regenerate to full health just as the Resistance and Slowness wears off, if no other damage is taken.
          All these effects combined mimics how the Dymarip regens his full health when it uses its totem, and how it never moves as it uses the centre's buff, having Resistance and Absorption to tank hits while it's there.


        Dymarip's Flame

              
        • Acquired from beating the Dymarip boss and resting the pyramid, every time.
        • It is a crossbow that mimics the fireball attack mechanic of the Dymarip.
        • Similar to the Dymarip, it shoots three arrow projectiles with Multishot.
        • It is enchanted with Flame and shoots flaming arrows, an enchantment that is usually incompatible with crossbows.
        • Though it consumes regular arrows, it shoots tipped arrows of Hunger II (0:10), mimicking the Hunger status effect associated with the desert and the pyramid.
        • It is Unbreakable, meaning that it will always be at full durability.
        • When uncharged, players will have a 10% increase in movement speed if the crossbow is held.
        • However, when loaded with an arrow, players will move 10% slower while holding the crossbow until the arrow is fired, and the increase in speed will return.
        • This mimics the Fleeing state of the second phase of the boss fight where the Dymarip moves very quickly unless it is about to fire.

          • The advancement Bring Home the Beacon should not be awarded when the beacon is auto-constructed as a reward for completing the boss fight. There's no simple way to prevent this from happening; overwriting the vanilla advancement, adding an extra condition perhaps? Not sure.
          • In phase 2, when the boss is in Fleeing state and tries to return to the center, sometimes it stops short of the center. The ocelot seems content with the distance to pathfind to the chicken. hmmm. It's not too big of an issue.
          • The sound effects show up as random sound events if narration is turned on. Nothing much I can do
          • Players digging and towering upwards below the pyramid might get stuck if they change into adventure mode. Use /function dpyramid:0dev/unstuck




          I would like to say thanks to my friends Diffindo1, JulianMC_201 and GiNeRbReAdMaN (I had to look through my server logs to find how to spell that) for putting in hours in playtesting the many many iterations of the boss and giving critical feedback! (As well as trying to exploit mechanics and evolving the meta, y'all are every game designer's dream T.T)

          PSA

          Just a heads up for people using this datapack AND the Quark mod on 1.16+


          The datapack wont work unless you switch off Quark replacing the pyramid chests with birch chests. You dont have to switch the whole feature off, you can just easily remove the part that specifically impacts the desert pyramid, by searching something like "pyramid" or "chest" in the config file ( CTRL+F in Notepad or Notepad++ ) and removing the bit of text in the square brackets about birch chests. Remember to check if the comas are in the right spot after youre done, Java can be really fussy bout those types of things! After loading up Minecraft again, the datapack should work fine.

          End of PSA

          Thank you Jabbar! I've made this last year, and I realize that there's a million ways the datapack can be optimized. I've learnt so much in the past year. It was revolutionary enough since no one had ever made a datapack that changed the desert pyramid structure before, since they cannot be easily changed with the hard coded structure feature. The current code detects the four oak chests at the bottom of the pyramid, and then replaces the pyramid if they exist. In my Ocean Monuments dpack, I used the bottommost corner of the structure feature to locate the cornerstone coordinate to set off all the commands off of.

          Nevertheless. Uni's been tough and I don't think I'll come back to work on this. Anyone is free to update and reupload. Thanks for the PSA!

          I figured that the chests mightve been responsible for the pyramid not being picked up by the datapack as a pyramid because it was the only thing that was different from the vanilla ones, so upon discovering it was Quarks doing, I figured everyone else should know so that they dont haveta look for the issue like I did. No need to come back to this, its perfect as it is. Youve done a great job, to say the least. I do have a question, however. Would you happen to know which function do I have to edit to use a different boss bar? As of now, the current boss bar the datapack is using is the Ender Dragon one, and it looks sort of odd on my end, since Im using a texture pack that makes that specific boss bar End-themed. Would you happen to remember where could I find the function/line thats responsible for assigning the boss bar?

          Sflr! But thanks! Glad you enjoyed.

          I set the bossbar to look exactly as if the Dymarip is one of the vanilla bosses. To use a different boss bar, you basically want a different settings for the current bossbar. You can follow https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Commands/bossbar for how to edit a bossbar. But basically your command syntax goes /bossbar set <id> (color|max|name|players|style|value|visible). Your <id> is dpyramid:cc.dp.healthbar. So what I did was /bossbar set dpyramid:cc.dp.healthbar color pink so you can change pink to any color of your choice!

          Hello! It's been a while since I've touched this datapack. But as a previous comment had said, datapacks don't jive well with Paper servers. The code is old, and the structure detection code is so bad, and could be improved to prevent the first set of errors. With the datapack loaded, do the pyramids still look like regular vanilla pyramids? You could probably ignore the errors if everything works, but if it doesn't do let me know.

          For the second set of errors, simply calling the /reload command should fix it. If not, you can maybe run "/team add cc.dp.hidename" followed by "/team modify cc.dp.hidename nametagVisibility never". I hope this fixes it for you!

          Hi! Thanks for downloading! Try doing /reload, does it print out the "Desert Pyramid datapack active" message in chat?



          If not, then my guess is that the problem occurred when you extracted the zip file. Erm, so you're in .minecraft/saves/(world)/datapacks right. You've got folders/zip files for all your different datapacks right? In each of those individual datapack folders, there should be three things: pack.mcmeta, pack.png and a folder named data. If you've only got a folder inside the individual datapack folder, then you might need to reorganise your hierarchies and bring that folder up; or just unzip the zip file again. I really hope this answered your question, and that you can start playing with it. Well don't hesitate to ask me again if this doesn't work!

          This has to be one of my favorite datapack so far! I really like the boss addition. I don't know if you know this but Minecraft Dungeons has a desert temple boss music and I think it would fit pretty well with datapack :D

          Great to hear you're enjoying it! I didn't know that, and itcouldcopyrighttousetheirmusicinmyowndatapackIdon'tknow but I guess you'll have to settle for finding the mp3 and playing it in another window while fighting the boss LOL

          Interestingly, in the middle of development, I focused on visual and sound effects, and if you were just running about, there'd be just awkward silent gaps. I've tried to make the atmosphere grander by looping a ton of cave ambient noises, and though I wish to include some Epic Boss Music (TM), this is the best way I can give some ambience without having to compose background music myself!

          Hello, sorry for the late reply!

          Reply
          1. You want to remove... all my custom advancements? The custom advancements are meant to guide the player to get to experience all the features yet without spoon-feeding them a wikipedia book. But theoretically, you can just delete the entire advancements folder in the data/dpyramid/advancements path. Haven't tried this, though.

          2. The load/reload message should only be printed in chat only when you hit /reload... which shouldn't be that often so I thought it would be okay to just broadcast it to everyone. Yes I should've used @s instead. If you want to hide the load/reload for every single player, you could probably delete msg.mcfunction in data/dpyramid/functions.

          Thanks for reaching out, and I hope you've been enjoying it!

          Hey again! Thanks for coming back to me. Whew, 7:20am, I'd still be deep in sleep. Hopefully I can get back into a good sleeping schedule before uni restarts again.

          Regarding the "Unable to add mob to team "cc.dp.hidename", it's a dummy team that I add all my mobs into in order to hide their custom name tag. It says it doesn't exist, but the team should be created during loading of the datapack. This should be able to be fixed by using /reload to trigger the init.mcfunction function file. Some text should also be printed in the chat, saying, "CC's Desert Pyramid Boss Full Release v1.x initialised!".

          Regarding the pastern, it doesn't really explain much to me, but after some mulling I recognised the 4 chests at y=53 and each 2 blocks apart in the cardinal directions from a centre. These are the old vanilla desert pyramid loot chests that are generated below the desert pyramid, but my datapack fills up the entire basement with sandstone and destroys those old chests. It's a Bukkit thing and I don't know how to solve it, but it shouldn't be a problem, if you can ignore the console spam.

          These are small errors that shouldn't cause any problems at all!

          Hello Mr. Dev,

          Really appreciate & love the work you put to make such & amazing Data Pack, I have no offense but I have found some errors in the console which makes this pack un-usable on Paper 1.16.2.

          I have pasted the error I have encountered on this version

          Please let me know if you can fix this as I would love to play with this data pack & surprise the players on my server by your work!

          Hi, Jibran! You can call me Caleb.
          Thank you for enjoying my work! That really makes me happy to hear. It really was hours upon hours of play testing that me and my friends have put in. Thank you for pasting the error in a pastebin as well! I could instantly identify the problem.

          Your datapack file name is "Desert Pyramid Boss 1-15.zip". This is an old version of the datapack for Minecraft version 1.15.2, which I've stopped updating and bug fixing, since mostly everyone has started on 1.16. And it seems like you're using 1.16.2 too!

          You need to delete the old datapack file named "Desert Pyramid Boss 1-15.zip", and redownload the datapack from the "DOWNLOAD DATA PACK" button above, or here (this is the current latest version as of now).

          That should solve it. Disclaimer, if you're using an old Minecraft world where you've used an older version of the datapack before, then every generated pyramid will probably be re-initialised, meaning that all the pyramids that you've visited and looted before will probably be "re-generated", meaning all the loot in the chests will be refilled, aside from other aesthetic updates. This is because I've added new features, so I just made the newest version of the datapack to overwrite the older versions of the pyramids that are reconstructed by the old version of the datapack.

          Anyways. The main issue with your error was that the name "zombie_pigman" form 1.15.2 was changed to "zombified_piglin" in 1.16. Small error, and it really shouldn't affect the datapack at all.

          Once again, thanks for voicing out and doing all this work so that your players can have a good time! Don't hesitate to contact me, and do tell me if this works!

          Ah yes, ah, there are many countermeasures to prevent explosives like creepers and the Wither from destroying the Pyramid. Then people would be able to circumvent the Adventure Mode thing and then loot the chests too easily, besides destroying the whole pyramid and then there's no way to summon the Dymarip again since you've destroyed the center orange terracotta.

          Now, to regenerate the structure is super easy, just like regenerating the obsidian pillars in the End. But obviously I can't have it on a loop and constantly regenerate the structure every second. Or maybe there can be a trigger for it?

          Anyways, creepers would spawn inside the pyramid, and players could lead creepers inside. There's a whole chunk of gold blocks under the pyramid for the beacon to work. There's a lot of stuff to consider and I think auto-killing explosives is an easy way out until we can find a better immersive way to resolve it. What do you think?

          That's a good point, we don't want to destroy an area that grant you good tidbits, do we?

          Now that you said it I did something very stupid, just hours ago I downloaded another datapack that let you deploy orbital strike. I was rather hoping it kills the boss but not the pyramid, the result was reverse =(

          Maybe there should be a new way or alternative way to get the enchanted flint and steel, like kill 100 of the mobs that spawn at the temple, or some kind of ritual. It should also be possible to figure out what you need to do on a fresh install without reading any info about it, otherwise it is hard to use for multiplayer and such.

          Hello! Thank you for commenting!

          My reply because I realise my comment section is getting so bloated by my essays also, spoilers

          Regarding figuring it out, I have made a custom advancement called "Fire At Dawn" which spells out a series of steps to do (Obtain enchanted fire by sleeping in a desert pyramid crypt with a cat), and though players may not know what it means, this advancement precedes "Awakening the Pyramid", whose description is "Summon The Dymarip". These two advancements are visible and accessible at the very start for every player, and I thought this would be "figur[​ing] out what you need to do on a fresh install without reading any info about it".

          Furthermore, the bread crumb trail via advancements for the vanilla bosses are even more un-figurable. The Ender Dragon has "Eye Spy - Follow an Eye of Ender" and "The End? - Enter the End Portal". The Wither is even worse: "Spooky Scary Skeleton - Obtain a Wither Skeleton's Skull" which is immediately followed by "Withering Heights - Summon the Wither". There are no instructions on the block configuration, so players have to figure it out. If anything, I was scared that my advancements guide was TOO on the nose, sleeping in a desert pyramid crypt with a cat. Very cut-and-clear instructions. But in vanilla, there's no in-game tutorial teaching you how to craft a wooden pickaxe, you kind of figure it all out yourself, half-guided by some advancements, and no one complains, plus I do believe there's some merit in having to do self-reading.

          Interim for your first point of acquiring the Enchanted Flint and Steel, I really like the whole Egyptian-pyramids-cat thematic resonance, and even better, I'm making use of the vanilla feature of cats bringing you a gift in the morning after sleeping with them. I try to interweave as many vanilla features as possible, it feels more vanilla ofc besides teaching players things they didn't know about vanilla itself. And while the other bosses require lots of killing of Endermen and Wither Skeletons, I wanted something fresh. Also, cats don't spawn in desert biomes, so forcing players to find and tame a cat so players preparing for the boss don't spend all their time in just one biome, it gets stale. Also, most Minecraft players have never gotten cats because there really isn't a reason to, so I thought it would be a good incentive for players to explore more of the vanilla features. Oh, and then the Fire at Dawn is all like, how if dusk represents death and dawn represents birth, and the whole twist of the boss fight is coming back to life using the Totem Of Undying and everything. Yes I toss around in bed a lot.

          Back to the Enchanted Flint, the tooltip says "Can be used on: Orange Terracotta". So once they've gotten the Enchanted Flint, and they see the orange terracotta in the middle of the desert pyramid centre hall, and I thought it should be clear enough.

          I've actually strikethroughed(?) a line in my description, saying how players should be able to figure it out on their own but the info in the description is merely a cheat sheet for anyone who gets really stuck. It's good that you brought this to my attention, because I had intended the disclaimer to be forefront.

          I think that's all I have to say. Once again, thank you for your comment because I get to know how people feel about and how they receive the design. If you have more things to say, I will be happy to reply!

          Now that you explain a lot of the reasoning behind your decisions, it makes sense. Also I missed the Fire at Dawn advancement because im using a datapack that adds 800+ advancements and its at the top of about 80 below it, so I did miss it.
          Also a painting variant shows how to build a wither, although it doesnt really tell you that the structure shown means anything other than art. I love how the fiery crossbow is actually balanced for being unbreakable too. Thank you for responding so thoroughly, and I will leave you with one last suggestion.

          Optifine adds a special feature where naming an item can change the texture, which I thought you could do with the two special drops. I dont know exactly the process, but there are tutorials out there. A cool texture that only appears when its named exactly that way (because you cant get formatting codes in vanilla minecraft to color/uninitialize the name, it wont be skippable in terms of textures). Would be an optional quality of life change.

          Ah, it makes sense, lots of advancements. That checks out! Yeah, a friend just told me about the Wither painting, I completely forgot about that! Hmmm, I hope to be able to sneak in some other way of hinting the way without advancements, in case other people play with tons of advancements too! If you've got any ideas, I'm always ready to hear!

          I actually never knew that Optifine could do this, it's actually a really efficient way to do it, and most importantly, people without Optifine could totally do without it. Optional, you hit the nail right there. I try to stray away from mods, haven't used Optifine or any mods since the Wither came out. Waiting for 1.16's Optifine. I'll definitely start looking into this! Thank you for this amazing suggestion, techobalded!

          For the hinting, maybe you could trigger a message in chat that suggests sleeping in a desert pyramid with your cat either when you tame your first cat or add an advancement that appears when you tame a cat that is exclusive to this datapack, and anyone that reads the description will see the tip to get the enchanted flint and steel. Or maybe add a new item to the base cat morning gift loot table that is a piece of paper with a hint to the temple in the name, as if the cat wants to go there.



          Optifine works in 1.16 right now, im using it. It is just in pre-release stages and is still functional in nearly every way. Going on the optifine downloads and clicking "Preview Versions" will let you download the latest pre-release. Dont worry, anything that you make work before it fully releases will still work when its actually released. I doubt they would overhaul any systems because there is no need.

          Reply
          Ah, hm, I generally want to avoid messages in chat because you never get any of those in vanilla.

          About the advancement, "Add an advancement that appears when you tame a cat", this advancement is basically the same as Fire At Dawn, isn't it?

          Hmm adding the hint paper, see I just thought that after they've gotten it for the first time, they would still get the paper hint item, unless I have a tag to make it so they get the hint item only once. Hmm, but it seems like a lot to just add a custom item to hint to the player, but I like this idea the best. We'll see.


          Yeap, I heard the 1.15 Optifine took so much time because they were fixing a lot of longstanding structural fixes so the next optifine updates should be faster. I will start going into it.

          Thank you! I tried not to touch the design of the pyramid as much as possible, especially because of how fickle world generation can be. I've prettied up the inside a lot, and the exterior has some minor touches. Most people probably don't know this, but if a player is currently fighting the boss in a pyramid, the orange terracotta outside turns red. You can see this effect in multiplayer as a spectator while your friend plays it.

          But, do you have any suggestions for making it look nicer?

          I didn't notice the colour changing, that is pretty amazing... but what i meant is that lot's of builds nowadays have walls not made of a single block, but of similar ones, to give them detail, like the parts of the walls being randomly cracked.

          but really this datapack is amazing on its own, and thank yoyu for making it :)

          ngaw! I appreciate the encouraging comment! about the walls being made from different blocks, each pyramid structure are clones of the same structure file, so any cracks would be identical, idk about that. The walls are actually one block thick, so any cracks and detail might show up on the exterior as well, not quite sure how it would look. If I get any inspiration, I'll change it.

          Thanks for the nice words. It keeps me going, and I hope that you enjoy your time with it! Don't hesitate to drop me a private message about anything!

          Loot comes up perfectly fine for me. Have you used more than one version of the datapack (meaning, you had an old version, and then I updated the pack so you deleted the old one and put in the new one?) . Also are you using the latest version of the datapack (as of now, Full Release v1.2)? You can check by hitting a /reload, or you can do /datapack list and you can hover over the datapack in the chat and it should say the version there as well.

          I"m so glad that you have been enjoying my datapack! Your console error log helped me to locate the problem, it was during the migration to the 1.16 version. It should be possible once again to acquire the Enchanted Flint and Steel now. Your comment is very encouraging, thank you for reporting the bug!
